Sony’s PlayStation phone, the Xperia Play, has already been hacked and rooted.
LOL well can't say I'm supprised it's the NGP I'm after..
and this is why this device will fail if you want to take it seriously for gaming. As a phone it's nice though. It's an android device - ofc it was going to be hacked. Now will anyone want to make serious games for it after this? Doubt it. Don't sue anyone Sony ;)
Wait, I'm confused... Didn't Sony unlock the bootloader for all their latest Android smartphones? How do you hack something that is already intentionally wide open?
I think Sony released the bootloader or this one
LOL hacked?.. It's an android device, running on an opne source OS.. it's homebrew friendly lol
That's right, rooting most Android devices is usually fairly easy. And in this case it looks like SE intentionally made it even easier by giving you the tools
Wow that was quick lol, I might actually get it now.
where is the surprise ? it's an android phone
True, but Sony gave the bootloader to everyone, so it was even more likely to get hacked. I can't see why they did that.
because unlike consoles many buy android phones to "jailbreak" it to begin with .
lmao They can't seem to catch a break
did you read the article? sony ericcson gave everyone the tools needed to unlock the bootloader and root is pretty much standard for all android phones
Well im not surprise at this.
Don't people hack and root phones all the time? What's so special about this?
lol some think i'ts related to the whole psn issue...
No point having an Android device if it ain't rooted Especially if you have a Samsung Galaxy S
lol someone is still in the dark age with a default factory Galaxy S then
LOL WHAT?? Sony provided the keys. http://unlockbootloader.son...
Time to sue!
Seems more like time to troll and you're doing a bad job of it. Edit: @Raven When you act like those you're trying to call out you're no better then them your actually are worse... Wow... I guess because someone has a PS3 they must be a "Sony Fan". Nope all I did was tell you stop trolling thats all.
Ya, figured I'd see how the Sony fans liked it here at N4G. Guess I'll go back to my corner now.
OOOO, he called you a sony fan! Burn! This guy is being original with it. I'm impressed.
Raven is such a rabid troll. You guys should read his comment history if your looking for a good laugh
This isn't shocking lol... was gonna happen eventually.
So pretty much every device Sony have put out is hacked as well as their network
read the article
If he does that, he will lose the last brain cell...
Sony already did this , The OS is already Open Source...there is no reason to call it a Hack if it's Already Open source. Why worry about it if your putting Playstation Suite on the Smartphone, or Tablet or other devices. An People still are wondering Where Sony is taking the Playstation Platform? if this is not Quit obvious to People I do not know what is. the Playstation Suite is going on All Android 2.3 devices that pass certification Sony already has 4 devices that are going to run such a platform. the first platform targeted with "playstation Suite" is the Android OS. GOOGLE TV uses Android! Android is Already Open source! you can make your own Homebrew already for it.
Raven and Loner are sailing on there troll boat there brains are not open sourced Microsoft is there god.
Android phone being rooted? Shocking!
lol so a phone got hacked isn't a big deal. ? lol @ps3 fanboys here
Lol lol lol lol lol back @ you. You should lol back to your troll cave. Lol
"lol so a phone got hacked isn't a big deal. ? lol @ps3 fanboys here " hey sparky, Sony was the one that gave out the key so you could..It was Sony! do you not get that? Sony gave out an unlocker, IE: root access for the device. People it seems think Sony is against Home brew or hacking, so hell bent out of shape the mere fact that out of the (3) Sony is the only one of the (3) companies that does support Opensource OS's. Hell in 2007 Sony help start the Open Handset Alliance platform. Well before this Whole "sony is against hacker's an consumer Bu** Crap even started" Some Hackers today are smart, Im a hacker myself..but some are so blind an glory hounded that EVEN People who talk too much would know when to shut the hell up. An because they blabbered across the internet, we get the results we get now. Great shot OZWALD'S
